Given that my colocation hosting costs have been doubled this month there is any more of a change I will stop hosting all together since no major member interaction for the last ten years other than a few THEDARK1 GoatRacer I'm considering this might be the last year I am hosting CozWorld services.
All I can say is that It's been a great ride with all the fun I have had for so many years hosting everything.
I have made many friends from all around the world in almost every country!
I really don't want to give this up but the thought of paying double for something when I been working almost 33 that is 3 years past my retirement and sooner or later I won't be working anymore so extra expenses just don't help when you're on a fixed income.
My first love is in design and maintenance of CozWorld regardless of anything else.
As of now I just renewed the SSL Certificate for $30 for the next five years. Domain $20 a year are paid for the next 2 years. Xenforo license $95 every year. Mailjet services are $20 a month
Colocation Per Month $114.95, Per Year $1,379.4
Mailjet Per Month $20.95, Per Year $251.4
Xenforo $95 Per Year
Domain $20 Per Year
SSL Certificate $30 Per Year
Per Year Costs: $1,775.8
All of this is like a hobby to me.
The other part is there is a bit of things you always have to remember in upgrading and renewing stuff for a website and dedicated server when you are the host of everything there's a bit to maintain every week, month and year!
